If you havent already, installing the "Additional Drivers" as Richard
noted is worth a try, alternativly you can install using apt-get command
like; "sudo apt-get install linux-firmware linux-firmware-nonfree"
Looking at the log you posted earlier, it appears you (or myth has tried
to) select the USB Capture device as a sound device. The sound device
you should be using is your motherboard sound device, something like
"ALSA:iec958:CARD=Intel:DEV=0".. Select this in Mythfrontend ->
Settings -> General -> 4th Page, use the Scan for Audio Devices button,
then select appropriate device.
